G.E.M. INC. /EUROSHIELD® – PRESS RELEASE JUNE 28TH 2018
HALT THE HAIL !!
EUROSHIELD ROOFING’S NEW PRODUCT SET TO BATTLE SUMMER HAIL STORMS…
“Vermont Slate” – the world’s first truly hail proof roofing material has just been unveiled by Euroshield® recycled rubber roofing products. G.E.M. Inc., the manufacturer of Euroshield® is proud to introduce a hail proof rubber roofing panel in our most realistic looking slate profile to date – Vermont Slate SC (solid core).
VIGOROUS IMPACT TESTING
Vermont Slate has been blasted with a four-inch diameter frozen ice ball fired at speeds up to 411 mph and sustained no damage!
Using a custom built Air Cannon and speed measuring chronograph, we test fired the 4” diameter simulated hail at speeds of 95mph at an uncovered 3/8” wood deck followed by an asphalt-shingled 3/8” deck. The 4” hail passed through both test decks. We then tested the Vermont Slate on the same 3/8” wood deck, firing the 4” hail at 183mph, well beyond the typical terminal velocity of falling hail that size (approximately 100mph). No damage to the Vermont Slate SC panel was evident.
See for yourself…..The 4” hail impact video is available for viewing on the Euroshield® homepage at www.euroshieldroofing.com
The Vermont Slate SC is the first roofing product to carry a hail damage warranty with no limit on the size of hail impacting the panel. G.E.M. Inc. warrants that the Vermont Slate panel will not be damaged by hail of any size impacting the panel for a period of 20 years from the date of installation. Vermont Slate is UL2218 Class 4 Listed for impact…the highest rating available.
